Well......I did......I completed my LONGEST training run before the marathon. Now the tapering begins! Hallelujah!!!!
4:30 AM HER I AM!!!!
Trying to gag down 2 cliff bars at the crack of dawn. Not my favorite but totally necessary!
Last week after my 18 mile run I strarted to devlop a bit on a shin splint in my right leg. DRAT!!! I have remained injury free for 6 months but Oh well. It really didn't seem to affect me too much.
I did 20 miles in 3 hours and 11 minuets. 9.36 min/mile average pace! AWESOME!!!
At miles 14 and 15 at the peek of my runners high I decided to do two miles of Boston Marathon pace just for fun. That's 8.30 min/mile!
Slow finish but had hills on mile 19 and 20 so I was beat by then.
I usually start refueling on mile 10 and then every 3-5 miles after that. I always use GU energy gels. I stick to vanilla and chocolate. All the berry flavors make me ill along with any of the wacky ones so I keep it simple.
Me after the 20 mile run. I'm pooped. I hobbled into the shower and onto the couch shortly after this.
Now doing a little RICE
Best treatment for minor leg injuries!
Off to the grocery in my fave new Running T!
LUNCH!!! Salad and chocolate milk. PERFECT!
Marathon is 3 weeks away and I now I got this in the bag. Oh and my wonderful friend Anna is making me a custom running skirt for the marathon! I can't wait to show to you all. It's crazy gorgeous!!! Here's a sneek peek!!!
